the term "active defense." they're taking that continental interior looking at the view and applying it that sea to protect themselves but also i think to secure the communications for the energy flow into asia along the sea lions. as long as it is done in a constructive laway. then that is good. the contrary is not. the question from indian ocean. and it does not take well to the construction of water, which is a religious standpoint it in massive an infrastructure. i think it draws attention not just to what india thinks of it, but water is at the heart not only of the world's most dangerous or son, but also the world's most dangerous civil war zone. while we're discussing many things, we're underestimating the potential of have it within pakistan upon many of these new infrastructures that have been developed in china. it is certainly far more concerned about [indiscernible] then east to be five years ago. they have been attacked in that region. karachi is self, attacks within karachi, the pakistani forces have not been able to contain them. they just forget about them without inv
everybody but it is major, massive defense cut, defense cuts which the defense department is warning you can't do. it is payroll tax cut. it is jobless benefits will be cut. reimbursement rates for doctors who take medicare patients with the so-called doc fix. that will jeopardize potential care according to dr. seeing he will if. there are all sorts of things, it is easy to say, let it happen but, you know, it is hard to believe they will find the split call will they haven't been able to find because we start to dangle off the cliff as opposed to just approaching it. am i wrong? >> lawmakers do love to do nothing. they're very good at that. in this case doing nothing has some appeal. the consequences, speaker of the house john boehner and the president both know what happens in the future for them in what they're doing will be made much harder if they can't demonstrate they have the will now to at least get a framework deal together. that is just the way that that is. but the problem that they face is that very liberal democrats and very conservative republicans are going to look at them a
security and medicare, make some defense cuts if you have to but we'd rather just see the rich get taxed and the near rich get taxed if we have to do that. >> the numbers do not add up, the left is being fundamentally dishonest. they are saying you don't have to cut social security or medicare or medicaid to get the deficit down, all you've got to do is tax the rich some more. they are recklessly suggesting that we go deeper and deeper and deeper into debt heading towards bankruptcy. the numbers, megyn are stunning. we have an unfunded liability for medicare of $42 trillion. an unfunded liability for social security of $20 trillion. and a further 20 trillion for unfunded pensions for federal employees, that adds up to $86 trillion which are committed to pay in the future and the money we do not have. therefore, you cannot just tax the rich to get rid of the deficit. you simply can't do that. the numbers don't add up. megyn: chris, what do you make of this, the president is now going to go out on what looks like sort of like a campaign stop on friday to pennsylvania. he already had this m
. >> there isn't anyone left right or center who wants to compromise america's national defense but to believe that having ended one war in iraq and ending another in afghanistan and reassessing our role in the world we cannot find savings in the pentagon is not affair assessment. >>reporter: i have heard that from others, as well, after two wars, after the great expansion of our military over the two wars, there could be some savings to be had but at this point a lot of discussions are going on, a lot behind closed doors and not a lot of leaks. there is a lot of anxiety about what, actually, will get done if it gets done. >>shepard: thank you from the rotunda. personal income was up across the country including in all major metropolitan areas. the federal bureau of economic analysis reports 98.4 percent of the counties saw an increase. the biggest growth was in middle america in areas in the blue: nebraska, north dakota, south dakota. small towns saw 3 percent increase in income per person compared to 1.8 percent in urban areas. the analysts say farm income and especially the natural gas indu

dome, and other u.s.-israeli missile defense programs. i'm sunling that that is something that the u.s. as well as the israelis certainly were talking about to actually bolster that defense system. >> it's worked rather well so far, that iron dome. it's israeli developed, but it's funded, in part, in large part, by the united states to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars so far. as part of this package deal, it looks like the u.s. is making a further commitment. the president of the united states to the prime minister of israel. that funding will continue, and the israelis have been pretty grateful about it. when i spoke to the israeli president shimon peres this morning, suzanne, he said that there would be a lot more israeli deaths, a lot more israeli injuries if it wasn't for this iron dome system that the u.s. has helped israel with in terms of funding and some technology development, and he was grateful to the united states. he was very profusive in his praise of president obama, and when i said to simon peres that it was only a few weeks ago that mitt romney, the republ
harrigan live this tuesday morning in cairo. surprise move the israeli defense minister ehud barak announced is he quitting politics all together. this comes after he led that 8 day military offensive against hamas which ended last week in what is a fragile cease-fire. he is 70 years old now. and says he will stay on until a new government is sworn in after the elections. national elections in january. ehud barak is israel's most decorated soldier. he also served as prime minister. barak has been moderating influence with the united states and powers. his decision to quit politics comes at a time of uncertainty with israel. he has clashed publicly with the prime minister there benjamin netanyahu how to handle the threat from iran's nuclear program. folks at the macy's thanksgiving day parade spotted something strange. turns out some of the confetti was actually secret police files. coming up, how social security numbers and info on undercover cops and even governor mitt romney's motorcade ended unraining down ended up raining down on the crowds. second time in just days that a bird
. i think they're fine with the sequester, to see deep defense cuts and not actually replace them before december 31. they haven't proposed any. jon: that is going to be interesting if that happens. a.b. stoddard from "the hill." thank you. >> thank you. jenna: now we're going to move overseas and this fox news alert out of egypt where we're seeing new clashes between protesters and police at a massive opposition rally against president morsi there. escalating violence is spreading across the city and much of egypt really for the last five days ever since the president's controversial decree granting himself nearance sew lieutenant power. that is a move many critics say is veiled attempt to turn egypt back into dictatorship. others say morsi is attempting to clean out the old guard and reaffirm a brand new move to a new government in egypt. something we're watching closely in the middle east. with pressure growing last night, morsi sat down last night with a five-hour meeting with the country's senior judges in an attempt he says to diffuse the situation but refused calls to withd
participated in the defense department. government doesn't build weaponry. private-sector does that. i presented the figures earlier today with the students and faculty members. in 1980, government contracting with the private sector represented about $47 billion. it was $513 billion in 2008. that is a bit of an increase. you are raising a good question. there are conflicts between government and business that are hard to work out, especially in areas of regulation. they do not like that. there are many ways that the government and the private sector have worked together to produce some of the great achievements in human history. >> please chummy in thanking professor rainey. >> thank you. >> to us for a program on retirement issues for the baby boomer generation. the event features author marc freedman. will open the lines and get your thoughts. organizations are more likely to cut matching contributions than retirement plans. more of that, not beginning at 2:00 p.m. eastern. the united nations security council is meeting to discuss the situation with israel and hamas and the gaza str
seeing about possibility violations? >> reporter: hi, wolf. yeah, we're hearing from the israeli defense forces that there have been at least two minor violations of the cease-fire. they're saying that at least two rockets were fired out of gaza. the information that we're getting is that these rockets either landed in an unpopulated area or in fact were intercepted by the iron dome missile defense system. of course we've been talking about so much over the past couple of days, by and large however it appears as though the cease-fire is holding. skies over ashkelon at this point in time are very quiet. however, wolf, one of the things you're not going to be seeing is what you just saw in arwa's report is people celebrating the cease-fire. in fact, we've been speaking to people here in ashkelon and some of them say they're actually quite disappointed because they don't feel that their military has gotten the job done yet or that the leaders were giving the military enough time to get the job done. let's listen into what one man had to say. >> not only myself, many people here, many friend
of the doubt when it comes to repeat offenders. the detroit lions defensive taxle ndamukong suh should expect no leniency when the league reviews this play today. suh kicked houston quarterback matt schaub in the groin, at least it seemed that way during the lions thanksgiving day game. good morning, jamie. >> good morning, carol. how are you? >> i'm good. the nfl is supposed to review this play. do you think it's already made up its mind about suh? >> it sure sounds like it. ray anderson, vice president of football operations was quoted extensively over the weekend. he said what you just said. that is that past actions, past indiscretions will come into play. there was already a report from mike freeman of cbssports.com that suh will be sus penlded for at least one game. apparently he did kick him in the groin. i think when you look at that tape and we've all looked at it over and over again since thanksgiving day. he does roll over. it's hard to say he has control of his leg. there's that kind of secondary motion where it looks to me, like a lot of people he intentionally strikes schaub rig
people and the superb defenses of the israeli air defense. so if iran wanted to learn something from this, i hope very much it learned its lessons and it would stop its quest for nuclear weapons because if it doesn't, i assure that you it will be stopped. if not, by the u.s. and the international community, as i very much hope it will be, then we will stop it a.m. bass dor, you mentioned the international community. let's talk about egyptian president morsi. high did this power grab, as you know, shortly after brokering the truce between israel and hamas. now he is saying -- we are just reporting that he is saying, hold your horses, everybody, this power grab of mine is only temporary. does this give you indication that morsi is trying to make sure that he is not flaming the fire there. he has people protesting against him, inside his own country? >> well, i think what we are seeing in egypt and the power grab, as you aptly described it by president morsi, is just another indication of the fact that israel is truly a villa in the jungle. we are the only democracy. you know, israel is the
,000 in bribes to a british defense ministry official over a seven- year period. brooks has been a close confidante of mourdock's as well as a friend of british prime minister david cameron. in a separate incident, andy coulson, a former editor who once served as scammers spokesperson, is also facing bribery charges. he and brooks already face criminal charges stemming from the scandal that led to the shutdown of murdoch's news of the world tabloid last year amidst revelations executives and reporters conspired to hack phones and intercept communications. four people -- two u.s. citizens and two permanent residents -- have been arrested on charges of plotting to join al qaeda and kill americans overseas. the fbi says three of the suspects were detained in california last week while the fourth was seized in afghanistan. they are accused of planning to meet without, militants to carry out attacks in afghanistan or yemen. dozens of undocumented college students marched tuesday to the office of kansas secretary of state kris kovach to demand he focus on his state level job instead of the ant
: they are saying what they believe is on top of that you have the automatic defense cuts that are kicking in at the end of the year and they believe if you let all of this happen on the tax side, on the spending side there will be big cuts to the pentagon but not likewise cuts to medicare and other big entitlement programs and they believe that is another part. on the tax issue the republicans are playing defense. if they don't act the white house is ready to blame this on them in terms of going off the cliff. after coming out of the election where the republicans nuclear a hit the white house hopes they will not want to take another big blow after the election so quickly. >>shepard: powerball sales are skyrocketing, upping the jackpot and the odds someone will win the big surprise tonight. it is at $550 million. that is a record for powerball. the odds are slim of swinging, 1 in 75 million but zero chance if you don't buy. people are dreaming. >> i felt my whole life i was supposed to be rip. >> pay the bills and house off. not have to work. ever again. >> i have 17 charities first. they
a nato patriot air defense missiles. they're clearly worried about rockets and missiles coming into turkey from syria from the regime of bashar al assad. how worried should turkey be about engaging with syria in an actual war? >> wolf, the turks are very worried. and the turks are very disappointed. i've spent a fair amount of time in turkey this last year or so. they're very disappointed in washington's abdication. they feel that washington has left them holding the bag. the prime minister has always felt that he had kind of an inside relationship with president obama. but now the turks are left where they are. they are left with this running, shooting campaigns with the syrians. they're left with well over perhaps 120,000, 130,000 syrian refugees and they feel they have been left alone. the patriot missiles are the least we can do for them. >> thank you. >> thank you, wolf. >>> could air travel cost you more if the country goes over that so-called fiscal cliff? up next, the doomsday scenario some experts are now painting. i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. ad
treasury secretary geithner and even defense secretary leon panetta has made it clear he would like to leave within the year. the current white house chief of staff still considered the odds on favorite to get the nod to become the next treasury secretary from the president. it's believed he has the greatest chance here it's believed of getting senate confirmation. that leaves open the job of white house chief of staff. and i'm hearing that among the names that are being considered for that role are ron clay, the man once biden's chief of staff and did himself i'm told a great service in president obama's debate prep despite that bad first debate the president takes responsibility for it, does not blame mr. clain. and another name i've heard floated is dennis mcdunna. earned the great respect and admiration of the president. a young man not often considered in that light but the president admires him. but that of course leaves open the question who would take over for secretary clinton and for leon panetta. and those are some dicey questions right now given what dana has just report
. >> the iron dome, israel's missile defense system is working phenomenally. many of its rockets, because of this iron dome, are not hitting their targets. could we see more attacks on the streets by terrorists, like in this bus attack? >> that's true, iron dome is an amazing success story, first anti-rocket device in history to actually work in warfare. we've taken down about 90% of the terrorist rockets that would have hit in our cities. they're going to hit outside the cities. and, yes, the terrorists will try anything to get at our civili civilians. we've seen it before. many, many bus bombings like this. we've all lost friends. i've lost a close family member in those bus bombings. they're very, very close for us. >> do activievents like this complicate secretary hillary clinton's efforts? >> they certainly don't help. where terrorists in gaza cannot open fire on us every week and paralyze half the country when they will. also the goal is to prevent iran from smuggling advanced weaponry and rockets into gaza that the terrorists then fire at our civilian. >> israeli ambassador to the
was intercepted by the iron dome missile defense system. if everything remains this relatively quiet until 2:00 eastern this afternoon, the gaza border crossings will open. rallies opened in the streets as they celebrated what they call a victory over israel. the prime minister says he's dedicated the victory to that man, ahmed al ja'abari, killed in that air strike. as you know, that air strike inciting the fighting. hopeful that the cease fire will hold? >> reporter: the longer it does hold, as each hour goes by, people do grow more hopeful it will, in fact, be sustained. people are very aware that at this point in time it is still a very short-term solution as the looming issue of a long-lasting peace deal does still remain elusive. for the first time since this all began last wednesday, we are not seeing deserted streets in gaza. we're not hearing air strikes, various artillery rockets being fired in the distance, not hearing the wail of sirens. quite the contrary. people were in the streets since the cease fire was first announced last night. earlier, after midday prayers, chanting for
strong defense of had her at his press conference last week. beyond that, we really don't have all that much. i would note something and want to give credit where it is due, mark murray, the deputy political director, pointed it out, saw it on twitter, we focus on ayotte, graham and mccain but remember, democrats may not need those three votes to confirm susan rice if she is put forward. they need probably five to seven republicans, maybe they can find them elsewhere. i'm not saying that i know that for a fact, but let's not assume that even if the three of them are opposed that she could never be confirmed. >> they can block it by using a hold. >> any one of them can. >> yeah. >> yeah, kelly. this is not the kind of confirmation you want to send your top diplomat out. that's not the launch pad for a successful tenure as secretary of state. and, of course, waiting in the wings, john kerry, who we understand the white house will nominate to be defense secretary. i'm told he would accept that post even though he would prefer to be secretary of state. we've got to go but thank you ver
. overnight we learn that israel's defense minister, ehud barak is resigning his post. that's effective come january. that development comes as delegations for both israel and hamas meet in cairo today. they're meeting with egyptian officials to try to advance those cease-fire talks. and egypt's president mohamed morsi will meet today with judges to explain his edict barring them from overturning any decision that he makes or any laws that he imposes until a new parliament is formed. reza sayah is in cairo this morning. let's start with mohamed morsi, please. >> yeah, good morning, soledad. a few thousand protesters still here in south tahrir squares, especially those who camped out over the past several days, still seeing some clashes. most of them triggered by what seem to be teenagers and twenty somethings out here looking for trouble. we also saw our first fatality of the protest last night on sunday in a northern city where a 15-year-old member of the muslim brotherhood youth movement was clubbed to death. at this point the brotherhood doesn't seem to be using that fatality as a rallyin

. and then came the 1980s and the tax cuts of ronald reagan combined with greater defense spending leading to hugely higher annual deficits covered by borrowing. and thus again a swelling nationa debt. but with no wars at all. then under presidents george h.w. bush and bill clinton we took action. for a while, both parties agreed, says simon johnson. >> there was a bipartisan agreement to raise revenue and put something of a damper on spending. so that's an important moment in the bigger picture, of course, that was just a small hesitation on the part of a much larger national debt. >> reporter: because in the bigger picture, a president just can't accomplish very much if he's cutting spending and won't raise taxes. and so yet again, more borrowing. under presidents george w. bush and barack obama. higher deficits and debt that, because of the graying baby boom, are fated to get even worse. >> the population was always going to age, the baby boomers were going to retire. they were paying a lot of social security contributions in 1990s. we were always going to shift into structural deficit
